A very eloquent review of where WordPress stands in today's web and of what it can be made into. Includes ideas for where WordPress might go in the future, some criticisms, and input from notable community members. Well worth a read for anyone who wants to check the current view of WordPress. Some good discussion in the comments as well - whoever said comments were dead??

I recently switched to SiteGround for hosting my sites, including this one. I lay out my rationale, along with the steps taken to make the move happen. I also reflect on the benefits of the move and how I found the process.
It’s sometimes a challenge to find quality content online about WordPress at a suitable skill level. Multiple sites have attempted to be a hub for news and other content about WordPress – some are still around, and others are not.

Capsule is a WordPress theme spearheaded by Alex King, a prolific WordPress user and developer. The premise behind Capsule is to provide a purpose-built system for coders to maintain programming notes, knowledge, and snippets in a WordPress-based application. Very neat!
A suite of test data for WordPress, to be used for testing theme appearance and behaviour. Builds on WordPress' own theme test data with years of personal experience to "create a potent cocktail of simulated, quirky user content". Looks like another worthwhile tool in the theme development toolbox.
The WP Daily website has been growing and noticeably active in recent times. One of its latest initiatives is the creation and curation of a library of WordPress-related resources. These run the gamut from news to tutorials to podcasts, touching on numerous subjects over varied media.
This is a welcome initiative because, as powerful as search engines are today, finding relevant, useful, and quality content can still be a challenge for any subject. WP Daily are taking a step to bridging that gap with their Community Resource Library initiative.
